A Cost-Efficient Solution for Many Roof Types
Commercial roof coatings are a cost-efficient solution that can be applied to many types of flat and low slope commercial roofs. Unlike a roof replacement, a roof coating does not require the expense and mess of fully tearing down and rebuilding your roof. Instead, these coatings may be installed directly over the surface of your existing roof.
Because this is a full-roof solution, it can often be more effective than a roof repair. While timely repairs are an excellent solution for minor, isolated issues on a commercial roof, sealing your roof can help resolve more widespread problems such as leaks and drainage issues.
Our Commercial Seal Coating Options
In commercial roofing, there are no “one size fits all” solutions. This means no roof coating will be the ideal solution for every type of commercial roof. That’s why at My Florida Roofing Contractor, we work with a wide variety of commercial seal coating materials. This allows us to provide the ideal solution for your roof type, your needs, and your budget.
Our seal coatings include:
- Silicone Coating – Silicone is a permanent solution that does not degrade, chalk, or crack under harsh UV rays. The smooth surface of silicone provides superior resistance to mildew, mold, and stains.
- Acrylic Coating – The acrylic roofing system is energy-efficient, chemical resistant, durable, leak-free, and long-lasting. This may also be a more affordable option than silicone if the roof meets the minimum required slope.
- Elastomeric Coating – Elastomeric roof coatings are paint-like roofing materials that seal and protect your roof against moisture and damage. It forms a lightweight, yet durable roof surface much like a single-ply membrane roofing material.
- Cool Roof Coating – Cool roof coatings reflect up to 85% of heat, which helps to cool your building, reduce the expansion and contraction of the roof, and increase the roof’s lifespan while saving on air conditioning bills.
The Roof Coating Process
Commercial roof coatings aren’t a perfect roofing solution, as errors during installation can result in trapped moisture that may compromise your roof. That’s why it’s crucial to trust your commercial seal coating to a skilled professional that will take the time to ensure the job is done correctly.
At My Florida Roofing Contractor, we take several steps to ensure our seal coatings are installed perfectly each and every time. This starts with thorough preparation of the roof’s surface, including repairs of existing blisters or cracks, removing all debris, washing the roof’s surface, and waiting for the roof to dry completely before installation begins. During the installation process, we carefully follow all manufacturer directions to ensure the highest quality.

The type of commercial roofing membranes commonly described as “single-ply” are flexible sheets of compounded synthetic materials that are manufactured in a factory to strict quality control requirements . Single ply roofing has been around for some time and is becoming even more popular than ever due to the new standards of green buildings and construction. Due to its versatility, single ply can be applied to literately any type of deck, such as wooden, lightweight concrete gypsum or solid concrete. It can be mechanically fastened, self-adhered or set in approved asphalt or rolled-on adhesive, with all being heat welded which provides an incredible seal.
Single ply roof systems provide strength, flexibility, and long-lasting durability. The advantages of pre Single -fabricated sheets are; the consistency of the product, can use a variety of attachment methods, and their broader applicability.

Usually consisting of multiple ply’s of fiberglass sheets set in approved asphalts and can be made to provide excellent durability and long lasting life when applied correctly.
Pros and cons:
A flat roof installation is low in cost compared to a sloped roof because the surface area is less. Flat roofs also lack the rafters and trusses that are required in sloped roofs, which reduces the cost of materials. However, flat roofs typically don’t last as long as slope roofs and require more maintenance. Standing water and debris can clog the drainage system, so it’s not the best option for tropical climates.
Three kinds of flat roofs that are commonly used are:
- Built-Up Roof (BUR)
- Modified Bitumen
- Rubber Membrane
Modified Bitumen is the latest craze in roofing materials. Although it’s been around for a while now, modified bitumen has gained popularity due to the many options it offers.
From self-adhere to cold applied process, and even heat welded and torch applied systems, the added versatility makes it unique. Its resistance to extreme weather conditions make it a viable option for both residential and commercial roofing for those who are willing to invest a little more for a better peace of mind.
